Sadly - SADLY it's ONLY english tack? LOL! I'm so jealous you have a Dover near you. I only get to order from the catalog.

Maybe Cash just has low soles? Some horses have good cupped soles, others are lower on the inside and that doesn't mean anything is wrong with him. Maybe he can leave the soles alone next time and see where that gets you? Some farriers trim every hoof as if they are going to put a shoe on it (makes it very flat) even if they aren't going to - just a thought? Don't know if that helps - something to look at to see if that is what's happening.

TG, I'm so sorry about about your chickens - what is an LGD? How come I don't know what that stands for - I wish I had breeds here you wanted and I'd give you as many fertile eggs as you could stand to incubate.

EMS, did hubby make it in? Or what's his ETA?

I love and respect English riding, but with a slow motion WP bred 2 year old to train, I want a western tack store at my disposal :) That said, one of the boarders wanted to show me how her adjustable gullet saddle worked - Cash looked UTTERLY ADORABLE in a black dressage saddle & white square pad, haha! I should have taken a picture.

I'll have a farrier chat this next time.

Livestock Guardian Dog. What I hope my half pyrennes turns out to be. Right now he has more fun chasing chickens than guarding chickens.

Yes, cc, LGD is Livestock Guardian Dog. The only people I know around here that don't have predator problems, have LGDs.

What chicken breeds do you have? I'm toying with going with a purebred flock .. but I get so bored. I like different chickens, I like different colored eggs... lol

TG we have raised all kinds. Currently we have Black Polish, Buffs, Rhode Island reds, Red Sex Links of varying types, Black Sex links, Americaunas, My favorites though have been California grays (really hard to find and not cheap). We've had Ideals, Gold Laced Hambergs, Bantys of various types as well. There I'm sure are another one or two floating around. My son is the one that is into chickens. He raises them for eggs and rarely looks (Black Polish). His customers like having the variety of egg colors and only a few are stuck on one color (white or brown). All dislike the small sized eggs of the banty and I suspect will have the same opinion of the Black Polish. I find with the mixed flock I have all sorts of personalities. The hambergs could never be penned. They roosted in the bushes outside the window. The americaunas are the alarm raisers and will attack whatever they see as a threat if cornered. The buffs actively solicit attention and the grays were extremely smart and were easily taught tricks. We had one that was housebroken. The RIRs it just depends. Some like attention some not so much. They camouflage better than all but the hambergs and specific colors of americanas because of their coloring and our surroundings.

My husband and I have an app on our phones that allows us to track each other. He's still trying to figure out how to get alerts when I get too close to a tack store...he claims I need a 12 step program. LOL!
